Challenger the Eagle Goes to School

Kindergartners at Harbor View were ecstatic to welcome Challenger, the American Bald Eagle, to Charleston. Not only did they get to see the eagle they read about last year, they got to see the bird fly around the gymnasium! Thank you to the American Eagle Foundation for making a special trip for our students.

Mary Ford Students are College Bound!

We love this Facebook photo and post from Mary Ford Elementary School: "It's a great day for learning at Mary Ford Elementary School. Ask your child to recite the college bound creed that they say every morning. We want our scholars to know and believe that they can go to college!"
